Swine production in Negros Occidental grows by 19% in 2007

Negros Occ. (5 February) -- Swine production in the province rose by 19 percent in 2006 compared to last year, records from the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics show.

Provincial Agricultural Statistician Joely Cabarles said there were 356,000 swine recorded in the office' inventory in 2006 that increased to 410,000 in 2007 both from the commercial and backyard source.

"The increase was due to either the expansion or the establishment of new swine business in the province and backyard swine raisers may have also increased in number," he said adding that Negros Occ. is more than sufficient in swine supply.

The number of goats also increased by six percent from 200,000 in 2006 to 211,000 in 2007. Carabaos posted a slight increase of five percent from 98,215 to 97,782 for the same period. Cattles are also up by a slim one percent from 29,890 to 30,180. (PIA-LOL) [top]
